Marrone: “Training camp-mode is not over”

The 2013 Bills Training Camp is over at St. John Fisher College. But first year Head Coach Doug Marrone wants his team to continue in training camp mode for the next few weeks.

Appearing on The John Murphy Show Wednesday night from camp, Marrone said he’s telling Bills players to keep their training camp focus going, even as the operation moves back to Orchard Park.

“Everyone’s going to say, ‘Training camp is over, you’re breaking training camp,'” Marrone said.
“The one thing I want the players to understand is that even though we’re leaving St. John Fisher, and that part of it has been absolutely amazing, but even though we’re going back to Buffalo, we still have to keep that training camp mentality.”

Marrone says relationships are forged and chemistry is built in training camp, especially when an NFL team goes off-site, like the Bills have for the last 3 1/2 weeks in Pittsford.

“I’ve always enjoyed it,” he told host John Murphy. “I’ve done it as a player, as a coach. You get away, it’s a different type of mentality, not only for those players and the coaches. But also for their families.”

“My family doesn’t really call me or bother me, because they know, ‘He’s in camp right now.’ As a player, I think people understand the time restraints. And I think that helps you concentrate on what your job is.”
